Close up....well kind of.
Then, I just sewed down the middle of the strip. There were a lot of stops, pivoting the fabric and pulling out pins, but really, it didn't take me too long and I'm so happy with the way it turned out. I especially love that the sides of the fabric curl up and cover the stitching! This is a perfect project if you are concerned with your sewing abilities, because no one will see them!!
I'm now going to be on the hunt for t-shirts, so I can make some more of these. Contrasting colors would be super cute too! You could even spell out words or other shapes!!
